Crowns and Bridges at The Dental Junction

At The Dental Junction, you can feel confident that we offer high-quality treatments using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. If you have a tooth that is damaged by wear, trauma or decay, a crown may be the most suitable way to restore your oral health. You may also be missing one tooth or multiple teeth. If so, we can provide you with a durable dental bridge.

Superior Coverage With Crowns

A crown is a cap that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth right to the gumline. It can preserve a tooth that has been compromised by structural damage such as cracks or cavities. A crown is also recommended after a root canal treatment or if you have a dental implant that is meant to replace a single tooth.

Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth

A bridge provides you with an alternative to a partial denture. It replaces one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. It’s made up of a row of crowns. The ones on the end are attached to the teeth that neighbour the gap. The remaining artificial teeth are suspended in the open space, restoring your smile and the full function of your teeth.

Daily Maintenance

Though a crown or bridge is not a real tooth, it should be treated as such. You’ll need to floss around your crown or bridge to remove the plaque that builds up. They can also be brushed just like your regular teeth. Gum disease can still strike around your restoration. Decay may still occur on the teeth around your crown or bridge if not properly cared for.

What to Expect When Getting a Crown or Bridge

Two visits are required to have your crown or bridge. At your first visit, we’ll prepare the tooth that is to receive a crown or the teeth that surround the gap. We’ll take impressions and send them to our local laboratory, where an experienced technician creates your crown or bridge.

You’ll return about two weeks later to have your temporary crown or bridge removed and have your fixed restoration put in place.

FAQ

With correct maintenance and regular check-ups, dental bridges can last anywhere from between 5-15 years.

The darkened lines are caused by low-quality dental crowns. The metal restorations of the crown are exposed near the gum line. The gum line becomes exposed forming what looks like a black line. Replacement of the crown is often the only way to get rid of the darkened line.

  1. High in sugar meals and drinks: Though they are artificial, the natural teeth adjacent to the bridge may decay and that restricts the longevity and function of the bridge.
  2. Hard foods: We make our bridges from the highest quality but consistent biting of hard foods may weaken the bridge.
  3. Drinks and foods such as coffee, wine and berries can cause discolouration to the bridge

Anyone who has decaying teeth or needs a root canal treatment are a great candidate for a dental crown.

Dental implants, inlays, onlays, veneers could be all alternatives to crowns. We recommend you visit your dentist and discuss with them what the best solution is. Consider your goals, needs and budget when thinking about what you need.

Unlike bridges, your dental implants are permanently fixed. However, bridges may be a more optimal solution if you have one more missing teeth next to each other. Visit our dentists for an initial consultation so you can be sure whats’s best for you.

You can receive a crown on the same day. You will need to keep yourself occupied for a couple of hours as we design your crown. We recommend you keep your whole day free from any commitments.
